On the Southern side, these don’t always mean what some might think:
After the “War of Northern Aggression “ they couldn’t say what they wanted at times

That curve is so tight you’ll meet yourself coming around the back.

You can’t get there from here.

Y’all ain’t from around here. - or in my neck of the woods-
Usins ait from cheer

Bless your little heart...

Saw this the other day and it is a great example and explanation.

If a Southern woman asks you “ What did you say? She is not asking you to repeat yourself. She is asking you if you are right with Jesus because your about to meet him...

From my Grandfather

Success * is spelled WORK
* or luck

A penny saved is a penny earned.

Keep your words soft and sweet because you never know, someday which ones you may have to eat.

In the land of the blind the man with one eye is king.
